why? you apparently reference an image, but it's not visible.
I'm frankly very sick of the whole "warrior princess" cliche. I don't find violent or aggressive females, or ones trying to dominate appealing. Is that what you mean by her "kick-ass aspect"?
imho, it's only submissive men who are into that. you're welcome to like what you like, but I don't like it when it is insinuated that this is what all or most men find appealing.
btw, I haven't read the books or seen the movie
I like the concept of a film offering criticism of america's predatory social values, but I think I'll pass if it's couched in yet another female power/ego trip film
